News: Zedd Sets Release Date For Eagerly Awaited Album ‘True Colors’

2 min read

(AUS) Multi-platinum, GRAMMY award-winning artist/DJ/producer Zedd will release his hotly anticipated second album, entitled True Colors, on May 19th via Interscope Records. Zedd executive-produced the album and co-wrote all the songs. Featured vocalists will be announced in the coming weeks. True Colors is the follow-up to Zedd’s 2012 debut album Clarity, which spawned five singles, including the Grammy-winning title track, and cemented Zedd as a global star.

Clarity reached #23 on the ARIA Albums Chart with the single of the same name reaching #2 on the ARIA singles chart as well as achieving double platinum sales. Zedd also had local success with single ‘Stay The Night’ which went to #3 on the ARIA Singles chart, achieving platinum sales in Australia.

True Colors’ first single, “I Want You To Know,” featuring Selena Gomez, has climbed to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart. Written and produced by Zedd, with contribution from OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, the uplifting pop-influenced dance track was dubbed USA Today’s “Song of The Week” in late February, while Refinery29 said: “We’re calling it: This is the turn-up song for spring.” The video for “I Want You To Know” has racked up more than 17 million views on Vevo.

In the US Zedd has rolled out a series of bespoke events and activations for fans including the #ZeddTrueColors campaign in which 50 fans from 10 different cities get to hear a new song from the album, party with other fans, and meet Zedd at colour-themed events in very special locations around the U.S. “I wanted fans to experience the album in a whole new way,” Zedd says, adding that every song on the album is associated with a colour, which inspired the idea for the events. “I can’t wait for everyone to see what’s coming next.”
